to a military officers club and hotel which housed pro government forces. the state department apparently stayed out of the dispute between contractors over security at the libyan consulate before the september 11th attack there. according to letters obtained exclusively by fox news, the company felt security provided by its operations partner was substandard. but the state department declined to be involved in bringing in a third party to improve the situation. and the next time you feel a cold coming on, you may want to rethink on loading up on vitamin d. researchers in new zealand found while the nutrient does boost the immune system, taking large doses does not appear to prevent colds. those are your news headlines on the fox business network. now back to dagen. dagen: thank you. will government regulation come up in tonight's debate? well, it's on the minds of some business people, including former bb&t ceo. i talked to him earlier at the commit forum on corporate responsibility and regulation. and i asked him what exactly he's trying to accomplish? here's some of that. >> this is a -- what
. workers are protesting the government's austerity measures. government officials submitted a draft of the 2013 budget yesterday that calls for a new wave of deep cuts which will save $10 billion next year. workers will protest proposed cuts to salaries, pensions and other benefits. last week, 50,000 people in athens demonstrated against austerity. wages in china are going up - by some estimates, about 17% a year. it is providing china's growing middle class with more money to buy goods, though inflation is not helping. but it may also drive up the cost of making some of those products there, as well. in our cover story, who gains as china's employee base moves up? despite china's present economic slowdown, the story of its workforce recently has been of migration from farm to factory. 25 million made the move in 1990. last year, that figure grew to 158 million. it has increased china's productivity and competitiveness. but lately, that workforce is demanding more. "they increasingly learn that there's a big gap in what they earn and some other people." the wage gap in narrowing. tw
perspective when it comes to the tune of government than i do. i think you believe that government is the wherewithal for what we need in this country. i do not. i believe in private enterprise, private responsibility, but i thank you for your service. welcome for that service. i respect that she is a mother, a rancher, a small business person. i think she is campaigning in all three of those things they have a great deal of respect for what she did on a school board and a legislature. you are always putting yourself at risk. we have fundamental disagreements. the negative advertising, in one year and -- on you have to do is avoid watching television is not a bad option. what she just said is not true. i started a business in nebraska, and the first thing i had to do to start our business must get a permit from the city office, talk to the county, the state. i understand that government does not create jobs. i understand you've got to be careful with taxes and regulation to make that hpen. thats political rhetoric in my view, and it does not resemble the facts. she said it is diffu
networks for the poor in new mexico. i believe if the federal government would have block granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, done away with all the strings and the mandates that i could have effectively overseen the delivery of health care to the poor. i think you apply that same template to medicare, health care for those over 65, get the federal government out of the health care business completely, give it up to the states -- in this case block grants that balance revenu with expenditures -- and that's how we're going to get out of this. we're going to -- giving it up to the states, 50 laboratories of innovation and best practice, i think that's exactly what we will have. we'll have some fabulous success, we'll also have some horrible failure. failure will get avoided, success will get emulated. but that's how we're going to find our way out of this. >> host: gary johnson is joining us from new mexico this morning. he will be with us for about 40 more minutes. we'll put the phone numbers on the bottom of the screen as we take a look at the libertarian nominee and his positio
conservative as katherine made clear, there's nothing conservative about a government that prevents a woman from making her own health care decisions. governor romney talks about freedom. but freedom is the ability to determine the care you need when you need it. freedom is the ability to change jobs or start your own business without the fear of losing your health insurance. freedom is the knowledge that you'll no longer be charged more than men for the same health care. or denied affordable coverage just because you've beat cancer. and at a time when women make up nearly half the work force, and an increasing share of family bread winners, these are not just health issues or women's issues. these are economic issues that are vital and affect every family in america. they matter. when -- when a woman is the main bread winner for her family but takes home less pay for the same work, as a man does because she's a woman, that is not right. when my opponent's campaign was asked if he'd support legislation given -- giving women the tools to fight for an equal day's pay for an equal day's work,
.u. mark, thanks very much. spain is among europe's largest economies, but the government has borrowed so much money that it's been forced into huge spending cuts and layoffs to try to repay what it owes. one of the people working to rescue europe is christine lagarde. she's the head of the international monetary fund and one of the most powerful people in the world in finance. the i.m.f. is essentially a massive bank that helps countries manage debt and international trade. at her headquarters in washington, we asked lagarde about the spaniards like the ones you just met. >> i feel very bad and very sorry for the people, because i know how hard it is and i know how difficult it is for people who lose their job, for families who find it difficult to make ends meet. but equally i know that it's necessary. and it's a process through which countries have to go in order to restore their situation and be able to grow again and create jobs again. >> pelley: how long do you imagine the troubles in europe will go on? >> it has been going on for a long time. a lot has been done. you know, the euro
life in of free land, and i live half of my life under government control. what you presented today, it's not only dangerous for women because this last point to take care of them or four people, but it is dangerous for government control over our lives. it's more than any law presented to us before. to you know that according to those lost the government will have control on your account. so if you don't pay what you're supposed to pay, the government will take money from your account. to you know that the doctors will have a limited number of patients that they can see in a limited number of medication that they will provide. this law does not provide prosperity and better health. only freedom and free market, which created this country, wonderful will have the possibility. believe me. i have seen the government is extending its power in my life in romania. if you allow the government to stop there is no way -- to start covering your life, there is no way you will. >> i don't mean to cut you off, but to you have a specific question you would like to adjust? >> to you know all of those
of that nature. now, it's different whether there's a government grant, where the market power derives from political authority. and that's true of some of the essential facility cases. stadiums, stadium approvals and the like. but if the facility has become essential through market processes, which is surely the case of google, it represents success. and that firm is entitled to all the reward it can gain. now, greg and bob do a terrific job of showing why the google experience does not fit the scraps of law on essential facilities. but i think they should go further. they should deny that there's any merit to the concept at all. now, i think this is true of other parts of the paper. as i alluded to earlier, much of the paper is empirical. and i learned a lot from it really. there's a lot of detail in it. and i learned a lot. but the -- those responses and that empirical -- making the point that criticism by competitors of google's practices are just wrong on the facts. but i think that that's not enough. especially in representing the chicago school. the failings of the arguments by googl
'll get the government september jobs report. could be a game changer for the election. we'll get a hint of what may be to come. the employment report coming at 8:15 eastern time. poll forecasters say the economy likely added 155,000 private payroll jobs this month. we'll bring you the number and get you instant reaction from joel prakken. in corporate news, richard schultz is pressing forward with a possible $11 billion buyout of the retailer. schultz and at least four private equity firms have reportedly started examining the books of the economy. at the same time, he is said to be negotiating individually with the pe firms on the details of how his roughly 20% stake in the company would contribute and what role he might be playing after a buyout. and oracle ceo larry ellison says the company won't be making any major acquisitions during the next couple years. in an interview on "closing bell" yesterday, ellison said he is instead focused on growing organically. he also discussed the dividend. >> that's the decision of the oracle board of directors. i believe we'll gradually increase t
back. of course the government's cutting back, housing not coming back. against that health care hiring, automobiles hiring, housing -- the apartments, better. >> so jim, i hear the same thing from business owners, small, midsize, large. they all say the same thing. how you doing? hey, we're doing pretty good. who you hiring? nobody. >> great way to be able to make money is to hire fewer. >> they're flush with cash, most businesses, but they're not going to hire because there's just the big -- there's a big question mark over what's next year going to look like? >> we have earnings coming out next week. we'll be looking for three things. how bad sales are overseas. that really matters. we'll be looking for people talking about fiscal cliff. everybody's using that as an secure. we'll see how many people they fired so it will make it seem earnings are even better than we thought. >> jim cramer, moderator of the second presidential debate, give me a question you would ask mitt romney and a question you would ask the president of the united states. >> can we -- do we have to be particular t
reasons is silly ludicrous, and insulting to government workers who have reported news, good and bad faithfully for many decades. it strikes me, jack, that there have been a few more cases of corporate gamesmanship with financial numbers than cases where the government was not honest in the past few years. in fact, didn't your company g.e. have an accounting issue led to a big sec settlement not so long ago? now that you've made this outlandish claim, where is your proof, your evidence, the facts to substantiate you're certification, or is it just a partisan screed? you might remember when my office charged ge then under your leadership with a range of i am preprity we had the proof and the judge forced you to take out a full-page add admitted to your i don't think doing. the key jack, the evidence and facts. but more importantly why should anybody be surprised that we're finally digging out of the trough? i know the corporate titans want to believe that until their taxes are cut to zero nothing good will happen. but here is the thing. over the past four years the steady effort at ke
say it was at the expense of a lot of infrastructure in the country and basically the government was taking the oil profits and trying to redistribute it and not spending in a very efficient way. it's hard to believe, this country still has huge infrastructure problems. you look around sometimes, anything from medical to the roads to schools, and it still has a ways to go even though it had all of that oil wealth. >> what is the explanation behind that? that's a big contradiction. >> it is a big contradiction, and you know, hugo chavez has been in power for a long time. says look, it takes time. that's my explanation. if you look at the indicators, yes, people in extreme poverty, he has been able to bring down the numbers. at the same time, his challenger, a 40-year-old man, lawyer, comes from the elite but says he will work for the poor. says look, this country has not been running its economy well, and chavez, it's really going to be a cliffhanger in the end to see which they side with. chavez has a cult following with some, but many analysts say his popularity has waned especi
released a video of an unmanned drone. the israeli government says it monitored the drone as it crossed into airspace from the mediterranean sea. the israeli air force shot it out of the sky over a rural area. it's still unclear whether the drone was launched, but many officials suspect the iranian-backed group hezbollah is involved. >> "the washington post," an investigation by the paper reveals more than 70 members of congress have supported legislation in recent years that could benefit businesses or industries they or their families have an interest in. the practice is legal, under ethics rules. in one case, a california congressman helped get tax breaks for racehorse owners and bought seven horses after the breaks began. >> my goodness. hey, with us now, let's go to politico's -- >> at least try to hide it. >> come on, exactly. at least break a sweat trying to scam us. it mays us feel cheap and dirty. >> do the dog track instead of the horse track. >> just lie to us a little bit. i feel so dirty. you know who else makes us feel dirty, mika? >> filthy, actually. >> j-mart. >> gives
